Artisan Lane Supporting St Elizabeth’s
Excited to be supporting a well deserved charity. Read about St Elizabeth’s here ..
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Rachel at artisan lane, and are thrilled they have chosen to support us during their Christmas retail period. We look forward to continuing to work closely with this fantastic new business!
Founded in 1903, St Elizabeth’s supports over 240 vulnerable children, young people and adults with epilepsy and other complex medical conditions, the severity of which impacts upon their health, social, learning and emotional development. We offer access to high-quality, individualised care, education and leisure opportunities, helping them to live their lives to the fullest.
Our Enterprise projects are opportunities that provide experience of employment and work to clients, including providing a ‘therapeutic wage’ and support to grow, create, build and sell products and produce. We encourage clients who have chosen one of the projects to be punctual, follow instructions and adhere to health and safety rules – much like being at work.
The Drawing Room provides a unique opportunity for clients to develop new skills, confidence and self-expression through the medium of art.
The project provides an environment for people to explore their potential whilst receiving support and guidance from a team of qualified artists.
Clients produce high quality work through ceramics, printmaking and painting, (examples of which we have had exhibited at the Tate Modern Gallery in London, where our clients’ work won “best in class” recognition) all at their own pace and abilities. Ceramics and products are made using our own on-site kiln.
